Fractal Core 1000 USB 3.0
Intel 3570K
ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M
MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5
Silencer MK III 500W Modular (partially modular)
Corsair Vengeance White (can't see them, they're under the heatsink)
1 TB Caviar Black






I was really worried about the CPU cooler not fitting because it would come too close to the PSU if you mounted pointing up, and pointing down is not recommneded by manufacturer. Pointing it back towards the mobo plate made the mobo nearly impossible to install so I had to remount and point it towards the front. To my surprise it didn't interfere with the vertically mounted HDD (1 TB caviar black). The cooler's fan also blows air onto the mobo and its nice that it can hang over the ram (low profile ram, but I've read that the standard vengeance model will fit underneath, but not sure).





The stock GeminII came with a 120 mm fan so I swapped it with a 140 mm Bitfenix, WHITE. I planted the original fan onto the side plate. biggrin.gif Put a Fractal R2 92 mm in the back, so all the fan slots are occupied (and it sounds like an air conditioner, but I don't care).





So, excuse me if it seems sloppy to you guys but I'm happy with it and most importantly it's running the games. Maybe at a later date I'll pull it apart and start sleeving wink.gif

Nice work with the tight space. Well done.

Nice build! I love that little case. The only thing I didn't like about the case, was the HDD mount. I had to custom make a vertical HDD cage which gave it a cleaner look.

Cheers m8, I will post pics when I'm done!

I am kinda curious about the rad as a front intake, isn't the "door" holding up all the air getting into the case?

I am not sur if this has already been asked, i could not find it if it has, so i am planning on getting both a R4 Black Pearl w/Window and a Arc Midi R2 Black w/Window, i will be using the Midi R2 as my mane gaming rig and the R4 as a Entertainment pc, what i am wanting to know is will the clear windowed panel that i get with the R4 fit on the Midi R2 and like wise will the Arc Midi smoked window panel fit on the R4, i want a clear panel so i could see my components in the system better. Thanks: Mick

There are vents along the edges of the door to allow airflow. I've never used an R4 so I can't comment with authority, but there might be some turbulence noise depending on how fast your fans are running. Although I don't think this would be the case with the fans speeds associated with water cooling.

Also was there a specific LED you needed to use?
